Issue #65: Eros&Thanatos | Two opposing forces❤️💀

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics,
This week’s topic is Eros&Thanatos
Two opposites linked together: Love begets life and Death destroys it. These two forces and their opposition is often found in stories, from ancient Greece to the present day.
We will begin our journey by starting with a work by Patrizia Cavalli, one of the most influential Italian poets of these times, who passed away a few days ago.

Pleasure has no rules
➡️ Read The Keeper by Patrizia Cavalli | Pleasure has no doors
➡️ Read The Bad Girl | A modern Madame Bovary
➡️ Read Here is the Beehive | Shattered lines for a shattered love
The loss of loved ones
➡️ Play Gris | A new way of overcoming grief
➡️ Watch The Leftovers | A symphony of grief
➡️ Read Norwegian Wood | The charm in simplicity
➡️ Watch Manchester by the Sea | An emotional study on grief
A candle of love in the darkness of the death
➡️ Read Memories of My Melancholy Whores | In the space dividing lovers
➡️ Watch Amour | An experience
➡️ Play Shadow of the Colossus | What would you do for someone you love?
Death, an inexorable force
➡️ Experience The Family | When Schiele's desire became a dark foreboding
➡️ Read Because I Could Not Stop For Death | Dickinson's unusual carriage
And with this horror, sci-fi, and fantasy atmosphere, we end our track about Eros&Thanatos.
